I've never really understood the justification people think they have in holding onto tapes that could easily be given back to the band for all to hear as a release. It's not their music. It's the Dead's music. They're the ones that created it. Some people just lucked into having the tapes through various circumstances.

it's water under the bridge, but WHY did countless tapers and others into the preservation of the GD's music allow Betty's storage to go into the red. Was she brain dead not to bring this up to anyone? ALL her tapes/storage sold to some clueless fool? I would have thought that there were many deadheads to help her out.

Amazing. Well Betty, wuzzup up with that???

From what I understand, Betty was in a pretty dark place during that era and was battling demons and losing her house and just needed some quick cash.

I was under the impression a small group of tapers did purchase the storage with the tapes so they would be in the hands of those who appreciate the music.

I could be wrong, but I remember reading on all that on a few occasions.

ok, I thought the dude who bought them and then stored them in wet/soaked conditions wants $1,000,000 for them.

Those tapes should be liberated, the "owner" can find his own way home

You meant the guy from The New Yorker article? I believe that's totally different. And that guy definitely has a screw loose with that asking price!
